Question Where Be The QOTD?

Good morning folks, I've been checking for the QOTD since 6:30 this morning and I guess I'm starting to "jones" a little bit, especially since MidwesternBookWorm usually posts it so early. Hope everything is ok, but in the meantime I'll ask a question:

How many of you recycle? I don't have the room to recycle but I would love to be able to do that, it seems so wrong not to do it.

I am watching CBS This Morning and they are talking about how much plastic ends up in the ocean, it's astounding. Think I'll figure out a way to be able to recycle plastic at least without cluttering up my home. Ok, so I'm done rambling, so do you recycle? If you do, tell us how you do it so the rest of us can learn how to do it efficiently.

I probably learned more about recycling from this site than anyplace else:
Recyclebank

They are sponsored by a great many nationally known products/companies who give points
towards free products for participating. The update for those are on this CD thread:
Join RecycleBank for Awesome Rewards

It's a popular thread, so I'm assuming quite a few CD'ers are involved in doing whatever then can do.
It's an easy way to LEARN and EARN....and has made me more aware of how important the issue is.

I'm watching CBS This Morning also and I'm not great about recycling.

I recycle and I am not happy that I can't recycle more.

We recycle everything that the bi-weekly recycler picks up, which is about 80% of everything we use.

I would be willing to recycle if my apartment complex would have a place to store recycled cans and bottles. I tried storing them in my apartment but it got too cluttered so throwing the bags of recycles felt like a relief. I don't have a car and will not take those bags on the bus to a place that collects them. I give away used clothing and try to reuse/reduce printed paper.
